hey guys i've been using my dads au falcon the last few days and before i got it, it was leaking power steering fluid out of the pressure hose and we got that replaced and was good for the drive home and i took it out last night and it seems to be leaking from underneath or somewhere i can't see and is making a beepig noise when you jolt the throttle or turn the wheel a certain way and was wonderng if any of you guys know what this is?

wrong section mate, but does sound like your steering rack may be on its way out, or the steering switch needs replacing, or need more info on the beeping noise when full throttle.

Who fitted the Power steer hose?

Was the O ring fitted to the rack when the hose was replaced?

If that is OK, then dergease around the steering head, where the aitermediate shaft connects and then get someone to work the steering and look for leaks.

Pressure switch is located near where the hoses connect to the rack. See pic below
